Now a drinkers’ pub, this is a most elegant three-storey building beside the railway bridge by North Western station and which originally doubled a hotel for travellers when built in 1898. It suffered a serious fire in the 1982 so there is much reconstruction and replacement. The original fittings include the entrance lobby with tiled walls right up to the high ceiling and a mosaic floor announcing 'Swan & Railway Hotel':. There is also mosaic flooring to the corridor which is lined with four tall tiled panels on the left-hand side. There are two rooms on the left while the public bar (where the fittings are replacements) is on the right. Despite all the changes, the late Victorian footprint is largely intact. The large high-level glazing between the servery and corridor is clearly modern.
